Subject: [PATCH] usb: f_fs: Drop check on Reserved1 field on OS_DESC_EXT_COMPAT

This check has gone through several incompatible variations in commits
53642399aa71 ("usb: gadget: f_fs: Fix wrong check on reserved1 of
OS_DESC_EXT_COMPAT"), 354bc45bf329 ("usb: gadget: f_fs: Fix ExtCompat
descriptor validation") and 3ba534df815f ("Revert "usb: gadget: f_fs:
Fix ExtCompat descriptor validation"") after initially being introduced
in commit f0175ab51993 ("usb: gadget: f_fs: OS descriptors support").

The various changes make it impossible for a single userspace
implementation to work with different kernel versions, so let's just
drop the condition to avoid breaking userspace.

Fixes: 53642399aa71 ("usb: gadget: f_fs: Fix wrong check on reserved1 of OS_DESC_EXT_COMPAT")
